Football Fiends,

It goes without saying that I am excited about Jay Cutler being a Bear.

Are there questions to be asked and answered?  Sure, but this is exciting for so many reasons. Not the least of which is that the Bears, since winning the 1985 Super Bowl, have had 21 different QBs. 

21 QBs in 23 years.

The Bears have made huge mistakes in the past few years such as getting rid of Thomas Jones, but keeping non-producer Cedric Benson.  Letting Berrian go, and throwing their support behind QBs Grossman and Orton.

It is high time they got their heads out of their asses with a QB who can produce, and Cutler is 13-1 when the defense holds the opposing team to less than 21 points.

Chicago can do that. Defense has never been their problem.

Dear God, the siege of bad QBs in Chicago is a long one.

QBs since Super Bowl winning team’s Jim McMahon:

Tomzack

Harbaugh

Willis

Furrer

Kramer

Walsh

Kreig

Mirer

Stenstrom

Moreno

Matthews

McNown

Miller

Chandler

Burris

Cordell Stewart

Quinn

Hutchinson

Griese

Grossman

Orton

That is the worst list of mediocrity like EVER right there.

Now if the Bears can get a decent third or fourth round WR…LOOK OUT!
